Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization

Pioneered  by David Graston, a professional waterskier and tool and die maker who experienced a debilitating waterskiing injury, this technique has made treatment of acute and chronic soft tissue injuries easier and more effective. By means of simple but specially designed instruments, lesions within tissues are detected and treated with a stroking type movement, which ultimately helps remove abnormal scarring and resultant inflammation and stimulates proper healing resulting in less pain, and more mobility. Most patients see good results in four to six treatments.

The therapy has been proven successful in conditions including the following:


Upper Extremity

Lower Extremity

Neck and Spine

Bicep Tendonitis
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
DeQuervain's Syndrome
Frozen Shoulder

Joint Contractures

Tennis Elbow       Rotator Cuff Tendinitis
